A1 Heritage Breed Farms is located in west central Ohio, close to Indiana, not far from I-75. Like us on Facebook (HeritageBreedFarms) and keep up with us via our website.
We started our farm for several key reasons. First and foremost we wanted to be sustainable. We feel that God has entrusted us as stewards of his creation. Being sustainable keeps our land and animals in the best possible health and returns the land in better shape than when we received it. Secondly, we wanted to raise the best tasting food because food should never have additives if its authentically good! Third, we wanted our children to grow up on a farm—who wouldn’t? Lastly, and most importantly, we wanted food that was good for you. Raising a young and growing family, eating healthy food was a no brainer which is why we grow everything using organic practices. All of these decisions lead us to raising the heritage breeds of: Dexter cattle, Large Black and Red Wattle hogs, Buckeye chickens, Olberhasi goats, Katahdin sheep, Bronze breasted turkeys, and several other mixed breeds of animals, most of which follow the heritage breed lines.
We currently have pastured freezer pork available. There is lots of bacon on our hogs—32 pounds on average! No wonder they call large blacks “bacon hogs.” These are our personal favorites, they taste EXCELLENT. In our opinion, there is no comparison in taste and flavor! Our Red Wattles are also featured pork on Slow Food USA's Ark of Taste.
Grass Fed Dexter beef is the fastest selling item on our farm. Dexters have excellent marbling for grass fed animals and have about a 20% larger rib eye for its size (my favorite cut! ) They are extremely docile and small. If you are used to ordering a half, then you want a whole; if you are used to a quarter, you want half a Dexter. This allows you to get all the premium cuts of meat without breaking the bank!
Pastured poultry. Please order ahead because we get our chicks in late winter/early spring. We can raise as many meat birds as our customers want, but we have to receive the orders early to get our preparations done ahead of summer. We also have pastured eggs layed by our favorite bird, the Buckeyes! What a great bird, raised in the same great state as its namesake!
Delivery available Columbus, Cincinnati, Toledo, Indianapolis and closer.
As always thank you for your business and remember to eat local and eat fresh!

Auburn Meadow Farm. It's true! Slow growing, old fashioned British breeds make some of the juiciest, most flavorful grass fed beef around. Meat rich with beefy flavor and fine, juicy texture – all on a grass only diet – special enough to be included on the Slow Foods Ark of Taste!
Our herd of rare American Milking Devons are about as close to their British roots as can be. We began our work raising cattle as a direct response to animal welfare, food quality and environmental issues. We follow non-certified organic methods and the cattle eat only grass and hay grown here at home.
Our cows live a happy, natural life of grazing with their buddies, with plenty of spring water and free-choice shelter from cold, rain and blazing sun.
In beef cattle, there is a documented relationship between high butterfat content in the milk and superior marbling in the beef. And, a scientific reason the flavor and texture of the meat from smaller breeds given longer to mature is so much finer. We have taken great pains to resist the temptation to breed for increased size and beef yield thereby preserving the rich milk that made these cows such a treasure in their native Devonshire, England.
You’ve heard of Devonshire cream, haven’t you? Well these girls invented it…
We are located just about an hour north of Pittsburgh, and 10 minutes from Boardman, Ohio. We have limited amount of beef available each summer and are excited to share it with you. Don't miss out; when it’s gone, it’s gone until next year!

Autumn Harvest Farm, owned and operated by Marcus and Beth Ladrach and family, has grown as a family farm since 1946. We raise All Natural grass-fed beef, vegetables, and hay. All 230 acres of the farm have been certified organic by the Ohio Ecological Food and Farm Association (OEFFA) since 1996. All crops and pastures are certified organic.
Located in the rich agricultural landscape of Wayne County, Ohio, Autumn Harvest Farm is only 30 minutes from Medina, 45 minutes from Akron or Canton, less than an hour from Cleveland, and an hour and a half from Columbus.
Autumn Harvest Farm specializes in raising All Natural Angus cross-bred beef cattle on certified organic pastures with no grain or hormones. A rotational grazing program regularly moves the cattle through paddocks containing grass mixed with clover and alfalfa so that the animals have a nutritionally rich blend of pasture crops to eat. We take pride in raising beef calves up to full market weight on a 100% grass-fed diet, an effort that is reflected in the excellent quality and taste of the beef.
Grass-fed beef has rightfully gained a reputation for having higher nutritional value, less fat, and fewer calories that grain-fed beef, and we have found that their rotational grazing pattern contributes to the health of the cattle as well as to the health of the farm.
Farmers Markets: We attend the Downtown Wooster Farmers Market, June through October, Saturdays 8am- 12:00pm.
Grocery Stores: We sell our products at Local Roots Market, 140 S Walnut Street in downtown Wooster, OH.

Ayers Valley Farm has a passion for raising our livestock the way nature intended. We do not use antibiotics, growth hormones or GMOs (genetically modified organisms). We are organically-minded and we take pride in providing premium grass fed finished beef, silvopasture-raised pork and pasture-raised poultry for meat.
Our grass fed, finished herd is made of South Poll and Angus cattle. They are rotated daily to fresh diverse forage with access to clean water and 20 different types of minerals. This process produces a well-marbled meat that the whole family will enjoy.
Our pork is fed a non-GMO, soy-free feed to supplement their daily salad bar while living their best lives under a beautifully developed combination of trees and forage. The taste and juiciness of forest-raised pork will make your taste buds thank you!
Our poultry are moved daily to make sure they get their fill of fresh grass, bugs and plenty of sunshine. They are also fed a non-GMO, soy-free feed to supplement anything that mother nature cannot provide. This chicken will make you wonder why you've ever purchased it from the grocery in the past.
Through the years, we have partnered with nature to practice regenerative agriculture. We strive to ensure that our farmland is continuously improving for our livestock to feed your family. We care about how our meat is raised, so we decided to raise it ourselves. We quickly discovered that there is a difference with farm fresh meat; we want you to experience it too!
We take no shortcuts! We want to be your source for nutritious meat!
We can ship our frozen meat directly to your door anywhere in the USA or you can pick up on the farm by appointment. We look forward to hearing from you!

Beech Meadow Farm currently
offers exclusively 100% grass fed beef raised year-round in rotationally
Our beef is from our herd of purebred American Lowline
Angus. These cattle are the definition of a heritage breed as they are
from a herd whose traits have not been altered by selective breeding
since the 1940s. Cattle prior to the 1940s were well adapted to marbling
when raised in pastures or on range without the use of grain. Thus our
genetic line provides great tasting, tender well-marbled beef that alters
many of our customer's perceptions of what grass fed beef can be. They
are also smaller, more docile and easygoing than many of today's breeds
and hybrids, which makes them ideal for working with closely on a daily
basis. It also leads to a smaller split-quarter than with hybrids which
can reduce the total cost to purchase from us.
Our goal is to continue to improve the quality of the ecosystem with
which we work. It is intuitive that humane treatment of our animals produces
the best quality product for our tables and so we treat ours with respect.
We believe that good food provides for good health and that sustainable,
grass-based farming offers the most effective way to provide it.

Berger's Green Vista Farm is owned and operated by the Berger family with the health and comfort of the animals as a top priority. We are a 100% grassfed-to-finish, all-natural beef farm. Located in the rolling countryside of northeast Ohio, Green Vista offers a local source of gourmet 100% grassfed beef along with antibiotic-, GM- free or organically raised pork. We are a short drive from Medina, Akron, Canton and Cleveland and just over an hour from Columbus.
We offer 100% grassfed and all-natural freezer beef by the whole, half, and split half, also in various bundles as described on the website along with individual cuts during the farmers market season.
After outgrowing our ability to produce adequate pork for our needs, the hogs now come from local Amish neighbors who raise the hogs to fit the specifications we have established, including, but not limited to: no antibiotic or steroid type substance (ractopamine) use and all non-GMO feed. The program helps to keep their small farms viable and for their efforts we are extremely happy to offer them a consistent premium over the fluctuating market prices. See our website for more information.
We attend the Medina Farmers Market, Memorial Day weekend through October, Saturdays from 9 AM to 1 PM. Our beef and pork are also available in retail form or as freezer meats during regular business hours from Whitefeather Meats www.whitefeathermeats.com in Creston, OH.
We find no reason to use artificial fertilizers, hormones, antibiotics, insecticides or herbicides. We pasture all the animals as much as possible year around. Our cattle are rotated through the pastures on a regular basis to the benefit of both plants and animals. When extreme conditions of cold or mud require us to temporarily bring the cattle onto a straw pack, they receive dry stored forages.
We encourage you to stop by, visit and see firsthand how we work to make our beef the healthiest, most enjoyable eating experience possible. We absolutely love what we do and thank God for blessing us in this manner and for giving us the opportunity to share it with others.

Callan Cattle Co. markets Texas Longhorn cattle, America’s healthiest breed of cattle, live, or in see-thru, frozen vac-packs. CCC doesn’t use extra hormones, or antibiotics.
Texas Longhorn cattle multiplied in the Southwest without Man’s help or interference from the 1520s to the 1930s. They were the first bovines on the American Continent, brought by the Spanish for use as oxen (tractors to pull their carts). Their survivability in the wild was Nature-Bred into their DNA with 400 years of natural selection.
Callan Cattle Co. Texas Longhorns eat grass, browse or locally baled hay from chemical-free fields. CCC Longhorns are efficient grass and browse-eating cattle. Texas Longhorns turn 6 pounds of grass into a pound of muscle gain without the excess back fat, common to other breeds of cattle, that needs to be trimmed off. Similar to Bison.
Longhorn’s low trim/back fat on the carcass hook in the processor’s cooler means you get more of what you pay for when priced by the hanging weight. And yes, Longhorn beef is tender. We’ve had compliments on our beeves for 20 years.
Give us a call. We’re five miles north of Newark, OH on State Route 657 (7688 Marion Road), between Johnstown, Granville and Utica, OH, and 35 to 45 minutes from Columbus, OH. Look for the big Callan Cattle Co. sign with the Texas Longhorn cow logo. Cattle of all colors, eating Ohio’s Natural Grass. Delivery to central Ohio areas upon request. 740-745-3348.

Canal Junction Natural Meats & Farmstead
Cheese is a grass based farming operation where we
believe in raising our animals for food the way that God
intended them to be raised. We have a dairy herd along
with beef, pork, lamb, broilers, turkeys and layers.
We direct market all of the products that we produce on
the farm. We recently started to make Raw Milk cheese from
our own milk.
The dairy, beef, and lambs are 100% grassfed. They
do not receive any grain. The pork, broilers, turkeys and layers all
are raised on pasture and are given supplemental feed. The broilers and
turkeys are moved every 24 hours to another section of pasture. The layers
are free ranged within the paddocks that we have the cattle in.
We have very heavy clay soil that at one time was
a swamp (The Great Black Swamp). It has been drained off since the second
half of the 19th century. What was left behind was a soil that is extremely
high in naturally occurring minerals. Through proper utilization of grass
farming we capitalize on the available nutrients for grazing animals,
which in return makes the final product more nutrient dense. It has been
said that food grown on heavy clay soil is some of the best tasting in
the world. Find out for yourself today. Order some cheese or stop by
the farm and buy some meat to try for yourself.
We sell the raw milk cheese and meat off the farm.
The meat is in nice sized small packages and the cheese is in approximately
3/4 lb packages. Bigger blocks of cheese are available, just ask. The
cheese we will ship, the meat must be bought through the farm store.
We do have a wholesale price for the cheese for any retailers or restaurant
owners. Cheeses available: Cheddar, Colby, Jack, Garlic & Herb, Jack & Dill,
Pepper Jack, Italian Herb, Black Swamp Gouda, Miami Erie Canal Swiss
and Wabash Erie Canal Gruyere.
Meat is also offered in bulk. Beef is available by
the whole, half, quarter, or half of a half. Pork and lamb are offered
by the whole or half. Unless other arrangements are made, it is the customer's
responsibility to pick up bulk orders from the butcher shop once the
order is finished.

Cooney Creek Farm is a 250 acre family farm
nestled in the hills of Lawrence County, Ohio. We are located in Wheelersburg, Ohio, 100 miles south of Columbus; 30 miles from Huntington, WV; 20 miles from Ashland, KY. The name comes from
the largest stream going through the farm.
Cooney Creek is the
outlet for 27,000 acres of National Forest land that borders us
on three sides. The land has been farmed since the early 1700s
to produce meat, dairy, fruit and crops for local consumption.
Corn and soybean, beef, pork and turkeys were the main products
until Jim and Cindy Yancy purchased the land in 1996 for Quarter
Horses. The years of creating more grassland
and developing mountain springs to supply stock have seen the operation
focus on holistic, sustainable practices.
We now have a few good
horses who graze along with our beef herd. Red Devon genetics have
been used since the first cow was AI’d
by Cindy and are the basis for our gentle, thrifty cattle. Our
herd is now Red Devon influenced and registered Red Devon. Each year we get closer
to our goal of year round grazing. Our stock thrive on natural
forages and are supplemented only with hay and minerals. Only emergent
care medicines are used to treat injury. We are not certified organic
but follow many organic practices. We do embrace sustainable and
holistic principles and have where selected as Outstanding NRCS
Cooperators of the year.
Processing is done at a USDA facility and beef
is dry aged for at least 14 days, cut to customer order, clear
vacuum-wrapped and quick frozen. We sell by the cut, halves and
whole beef. Beef consistently grades at high select
to low choice, providing wonderful eating. Discover for yourself
what beef was like prior to industrialization.
Farm visits are welcome with an appointment.
We will be granting hunting leases in the future for deer, turkey.

Down Home Farms is a small (100 acre), veteran-owned farm on the outskirts of Mt. Gilead in Morrow County. We raise a variety of animals but our main product is grass-fed and finished beef from fabulous Belted Galloway cattle.
Belties are known for their nutritious beef and do very well raised on grass. Compared to other beef, (on average) the beef of the Belted Galloway is 46% lower in calories, 72% lower in fat calories, 68% lower in total fat, 69% lower in saturated fat, 57% lower in cholesterol, 19% higher in protein, 67% higher in calcium, and 73% higher in niacin (see http://beltie.org/statistics-on-beltie-beef.php). We allow our cows to naturally wean their calves, do not use hormones and only use antibiotics if needed to save the life of the cow. We also sell registered breeding stock.
Most years we raise a few feeder pigs (pork) (purchased from a friend's son who raises them to help pay for college). The pigs live outdoors with shelters in the pasture and are free to root and play at all times. They receive some kitchen scraps but are mostly fed a soy-free feed along with the grass they eat.
We raise layer chickens who get to roam throughout the pastures and woods most of the day. They are locked up at night for their protection from predators. Depending on the size of the flock, we may have eggs for sale. We supplement the chickens' diet with soy-free feed.
We feel privileged to be able to live in the country and to provide such wholesome, nutritious food to our family, friends and neighbors, the way it used to be—Down Home.

Flying Fish Farm is a 77-acre family-owned and operated, pasture-based farm located in Monroe in SE Michigan, near the Ohio border. Although not certified Organic, we utilize organic methods to produce high quality beef, pork, lamb, turkey, chicken and eggs.
All of our animals are bred, born and raised outside in the fresh air and sunshine. Murray Grey cattle comprise our closed herd of 100% grass-fed beef cattle, specifically bred for grass-finishing and providing a premium meat product that is well-marbled and flavorful. They are rotated through lush, diverse pastures during the spring, summer and fall and fed grass, clover and alfalfa hay in the winter. They always have access to organic, free-choice minerals and organic kelp.
Our heritage, cross-bred pigs (Tamworth and Large Black) have been developed to glean a large portion of their diet from the pastures and woodlots, enjoying, among other things, clover, roots, and acorns in addition to their organic, soy-free grain. We have chosen to raise Freedom Rangers for our meat birds. These are a slow-growing hybrid that does especially well on pasture, enjoying a smorgasbord of grasses, bugs and organic, soy-free grain. A mix of free-ranging, heritage breed, laying hens provide colorful eggs and round out our offerings.
By rotating our animals to fresh pasture daily and providing premium quality grains to our pigs and poultry, we raise healthy and happy animals without the use of antibiotics, hormones, steroids, or chemical wormers. We never use pesticides or herbicides on our land. We take great pride in managing our land in a way that is sustainable and healthy, for our soil, our animals, our family and our community.

The Flying J Farm was
started five years ago with the goal and motto: Restoring
the land, the buildings, and the people. Our plan and
hope was to restore health to ourselves and others through
growing our own food, and better nutrition and lifestyle.
We have been certified organic by OCIA and OEFFA for three
We raise grassfed, chemical-free Hereford cattle
and try to have freezer beef in all cuts available year-round.
The cows graze rotationally to maximize the pasture and their time on
greens. We also raise organic food-grade corn, soybeans, and hard (make
bread flour) and soft winter wheat. We raise hay for the cows, but feed
them only what we need to get them through the winter. We also grow a
large organic vegetable garden with help from interns and volunteers
(always looking for more) and have a farm market as well as a CSA. Products
from the garden are available during the growing season. We also make
maple syrup and have it available year-round.
We do four major events each year to encourage urban
folks to visit the farm and see how food is raised. These include a Maple
Sugar Festival in February, a Mushroom Hunt in April, a farm tour and
taste of local food in July, and a Fall Harvest Festival in October.
We have some five miles of trails for horseback riding, hiking or cross-country
skiing through woods and around lakes, ponds, and streams. We will soon
have a B&B and we do small conferences, retreats, and concerts. We
are always open to visitors if they call ahead.

For over 25 years we at have been producing and selling

under federal inspection and we will be processing the meat ourselves,
in our facility on our farm. Additionally, the only meat we will be processing
will be our grass fed beef.
This year the grass finished cattle will have an
average dressed weight of 600–700 pounds. They will be sold by
the half (300–350 pounds) or in bundles.

Hoopes Heritage Farms: “Farming focused to facilitate not manipulate.”
Hoopes Heritage Farms offers beef, pork, chicken, soy-free eggs, lamb and dairy herd shares. Retail cuts and bulk orders are available, with pick up at the farm by appointment or through monthly deliveries at select locations.
Beef: 100% grass-fed and finished Hereford cattle in a closed herd system. We do not acquire cattle from any outside source such as sale barns or day-old calves from conventional dairy farms. No hormones or antibiotics EVER; this includes vaccinations!
Pork: Our purebred Berkshire hogs are raised entirely outdoors and moved regularly, incorporating both pasture and woodlands. We offer a daily ration of organic and soy-free seed which we source and sprout ourselves, focusing on proper omega 6 to omega 3 ratios. We encourage natural growth rather than maximum daily gain.
Chicken: We facilitate old-fashioned breeds capable of natural self-breeding—not “super-hybrid, laboratory created and bred chickens” fed out in 6 to 9 weeks. Heritage chickens can take 4 to 6 months to raise properly. They are smaller, leaner, and packed with true chicken flavor. Our chickens are 100% pastured and allowed to mature at a natural pace. We supplement our chickens with organic, soy-free feed which we source and mix ourselves. We prioritize achieving a balanced omega 6 to omega 3 essential fatty acid profile.
Soy-Free Eggs: We strive for longevity in our heritage breed hens, appreciating them for all they provide—from the incredible eggs to the incomparable, nutrient-rich broth they will create after a long life helping keep our pastures clean. Respecting the reproductive system’s natural design, we do not artificially force production during winter.
Lamb: We raise purebred Jacob sheep in a closed-herd system. Our sheep are rotated regularly on full pasture year-round.
Dairy Herd Share: For those interested in enjoying the many benefits of owning a 100% grass-fed, A2-A2 Jersey, without all the work.

Ohio Grass-Fed Lamb is a small family farm located just 35 miles southwest of Cleveland in beautiful, historic Wellington, OH. Our goal is to bring you the healthiest and tastiest grass-fed lamb available.
Our lambs are born in springtime onto lush, green pasture and remain on pasture throughout their growth. Our pastures are pesticide- and herbicide-free, and have been planted and managed to provide an ideal diet for grass-fed animals. The lambs are moved to fresh pasture every few days, and are never given even the smallest amount of grain. Needless to say, they are never given growth hormones or antibiotics.
In early November, our lambs are taken a short distance to an Ohio state-inspected butcher, where we work closely with our butcher to make sure that our lambs are processed according to our specifications. Throughout all of this, our animals are handled as gently and humanely as possible.
In 2004, our farm enrolled in a conservation program overseen by the Lorain County Soil & Water Conservation District, and in 2010 we were awarded the Conservationist of the Year Award. This conservation program promotes sustainable farming practices that contribute to the health of our local rivers, lakes, and water supply.
If you would like an email attachment with all of our pricing and ordering information, send us an email and let us know. We do the hard work for you: We walk you through the choices of cuts, transport your lamb to the butcher, communicate your cutting instructions to the butcher, and pay the butcher. The only thing you have to do is pick up your 100% grass-fed lamb from the butcher and enjoy it!
We look forward to hearing from you.

Farm is an 82-acre family-owned, USDA Organically Certified farm in
NE Indiana (a short drive from the Ohio state line) that produces small
quantities of superior quality all-natural pastured meat (beef and chicken).
Our farm has been chemical and pesticide-free for
nearly 27 years. All of our meat animals are raised on organic pasture
in the fresh air and sunlight. We raise 100% Angus beef cattle, individually
selected for superior grass genetics to ensure the highest quality grass-fed
beef. They fatten naturally (without grain) on the broad variety of fresh
forages contained in our pastures. Our beeves receive no grain, growth
hormones, steroids, antibiotics, wormers, animal by-products, growth
promoters, or feed additives. We offer Redmond salt, sea kelp and natural
source minerals on a free-feed basis. Our chickens are also pastured
out in the fresh air with plenty of sunlight. Our chicks are started
with organically certified grain. Their foraging diet consists of grasses,
legumes, bugs and grain that contains no hormones, steroids, antibiotics,
or animal by-products.
Our farm is small enough that we are able to put
a great deal of emphasis on the health of our land, our soils, our forages,
and our animals—and that careful management undeniably converts
to the health and goodness of our beef and chicken. We believe that it
is our role to be good stewards in caring responsibly and respectfully
for the land and the animals entrusted to us by God.
We offer freezer beef in whole, half, and quarter
portions in mid-September, and fresh whole jumbo roasters mid-summer
and late-summer. We generally have a supply of ground "All Cut Burger" year-round.
Our meats are delicious, tender, flavorful, loaded with the CLA that
comes from fresh green grasses and legumes, and (bonus!) good for you!

We offer a space for families to come together to pause and nourish. We want you to experience farm life through our farm to table gatherings, our annual events and an open invitation to visit! We run numerous homeschool and family workshops throughout the year, catering to garden planting and harvesting, preserving, bone broth making and will expand to meet the desires of our customers.
You will notice our 100% grass-fed and finished heritage beef cattle grazing happily on organic pastures, our laying chickens roaming freely and our red ranger broilers following the cattle in their chicken tractors while our woodlot pigs are down by Apple Creek foraging in our back pastures.
As Hartzlers, we take notes out of Grandpa Harold Hartzler's book to farm and live as nature intended, honoring the soil and the animal. The farm utilizes regenerative farming principles beyond organic to ensure the soil is continually enriched and fosters creation of humus, not to be confused with hummus—though that's pretty delicious! We believe life starts in the soil and that microorganism colonies are not to be disrupted by farmers but supported to flourish. It never ceases to astound us how dynamic agriculture is!
To serve you well we offer pick up locations bi-monthly in Wayne, Summit, Medina, and Cuyahoga Counties on a rotating schedule and are establishing a shipping program to deliver our meats straight to your door. You are always welcome to visit our farm store located on our property: Monday–Saturday 10am–6pm; Tuesday 1pm–6pm, or by appointment. Call ahead and we can have your order ready!

Sirna's Farm and Market, a family-owned and operated sustainable
farm in Ohio, is located in Auburn Township of Geauga County.
On the farm, we grow a large variety of vegetables and
fruit, eggs from our free-range Golden Buff hens, 100% grass-fed,
pure Angus beef, and award-winning sweet corn. The
market, located on the farm, carries an assortment of jams, homemade
peanut and almond butter, honey from our own hives,
Amish cheeses, our produce, our grass-fed beef
and eggs, over 125 Ohio wines, and other wholesome local Ohio products.
While we are not certified organic, we use sustainable
agriculture with organic methods. The major contributor to our absence
of chemicals are beneficial insects (we believe that for every bad bug,
there's a good bug). Also, we grow three different ways: hydroponically,
in high tunnels, and raised bed plastic.
All the cattle on the farm are raised the way nature
intended—eating grass. We do not use any hormones or antibiotics
and they never eat grain. Our chickens' diet consists of grass and lots
of sunshine, which makes their eggs high in vitamin D.
The Farm Market is open seasonally, June thru October, Monday – Sunday, 10am to 6pm. Tour groups by appointment only.
Credit cards and SNAP/EBT accepted.

Sweet Grass Dairy is located about 40 miles north of Columbus, Ohio. Our love for farming was God given from a young age. We started farming at this location the spring of 2013. Our desire is to teach our children to farm responsibly and provide you with nutritious fresh food.
The center piece of our operation is our OEFFA organic-certified dairy herd. Herd shares are available after an interview and farm tour. We have other enterprises that revolve around the dairy such as grass-based broilers in the summer time and fresh eggs from laying hens that follow the cows. Grass-finished beef is also coming available here on the farm in the near future.
Our dairy herd is a mix of breeds. We have been using A2A2 breeding, so the herd is producing a lot of A2A2 milk now, but not 100%. The dairy herd is grass based, with at least 97% of their ration coming from the pastures. At times we balance the cows’ energy needs with a small amount of grain (no soy products) and molasses (under five pounds). We do this to maintain the cows’ energy needs, so as not to sacrifice their health when the grass is not supplying enough energy.
We strive to grow as nutrient dense foods as possible for your family. Please contact us if we can help fill your family’s food needs.
